    They moved the post and have ordered a shorter transformer so I am pleased with the look. It should be easy to hide

    I wanted to update my pond status. This is an end of season shot before the pond will be closed up. I bought a de-icer and an Aqua 800 for the winter. We added a small tributary in the front because we could not see much water action from the house. I don't know if you can see it in the picture. We now have seven fish...comet, Shebunkin and sarosa comet. The are about 4-5 inches, probably doubling in size.

    I can see it & it looks awesome & natural. I like how they did the falls in the stream, more natural & cooler looking than just flat spillway rocks.

    New update...June 8th.

    More plantings have been added and just finished the landscaping on either side of the pond. Late last year we modified the stream so it forks in two. Have seven goldfish and one tiny koi. Also, one hobbit hole.
